  1. PGES: Using Assessment in Instruction Amy Cody Clancy WVMS- Grade 8 National Board Certified- EA/ELA

  2. PGES Domains Involved:

  3. Basics of Assessment in Instruction

  4. Stiggins • Why Assess? • Assess What? • Assess How? • Communicate How? From Classroom Assessment for Student Learning. Stiggins, Arter, Chappuis, Chappuis-2004.

  5. 1. Identifying Learning Outcomes • Core Ability statements • Measurable/Observable skills and knowledge • “I Can” Statements • These are done for you in various venues…

  6. Deconstructed CCS- KY“Learning Outcomes” • http://education.ky.gov/curriculum/docs/pages/ela-deconstructed-standards.aspx • http://www.muhlenberg.kyschools.us/ELA_Math%20Standards/8th%20grade%20ela.htm (with “I Can” statements) • Benefit: • Knowledge and reasoning targets (learning outcomes) have already been defined.

  7. Curriculum Maps • http://www.jefferson.k12.ky.us/departments/gheens/Curriculum%20Maps/2012_2013/CM_Mid_ELA.html • I Can Statements, activities for learning, Sample Performance Tasks, Sample Activities, RTI, Key Vocabulary, Formative Assessment

  8. Teacher Guidance K-5 • https://www.georgiastandards.org/Common-Core/Pages/ELA-K-5.aspx • Provides “teacher guidance” link • Skills for students/strategies for teachers, sample task and key vocabulary for each standard.

  9. 2. Identifying Assessment Methods • Formative assessment techniques monitor student learning during the learning process. The feedback gathered is used to identify areas where students are struggling so that instructors can adjust their teaching and students can adjust their studying. VS. • Summative- high stakes, end of a unit, measures student achievement of learning outcome(s).

  10. A Diagnostic Continuum • Preassessment • (Finding Out) • Formative Assessment • (Keeping Track & Checking -up) • Summative Assessment • (Making sure)

  11. Pre-Assessment • provides data to determine options for students • helps determine differences before planning • helps teacher design activities that are respectful and challenging • allows teachers to meet students where they are • identifies starting point for instruction • identifies learning gaps • makes efficient use of instructional time

  12. Pre-Assessment • What do the students already know? • What instruction/learning opportunities are needed for mastery? • What needs re-teaching/further practice? • What grouping can result? (small groups, partners, whole class, etc.)

  13. Types of Pre-Assessment • Pre-test • Graphing for Greatness- self monitoring charts • Inventory • KWL • Checklist • Observation • Self-evaluation • Questioning

  14. Formative Assessment • depicts student’s life as a learner • used to make instructional adjustments • alerts the teacher about student misconceptions “early warning signal” • allows students to build on previous experiences • provides regular feedback • provides evidence of progress • aligns with instructional/curricular outcomes

  15. Types of Formative Assessment • Entrance/Exit Slips • List two important concepts or ideas from today’s lesson • Explain---- • How is X different from Y? • Explain one idea (concept, skill) you still don’t understand. • Define- - Quick, informative, helps you to plan your lessons or re-teach.

  16. Checks for Understanding • Mini Whiteboards for response • Thumbs up, down or sideways • Active Response systems (clickers) • “Try it” – individual- non-graded attempt at showing what they are able to do/what they know. • Pre-tests • See printed list of others

  17. Assessment Resources • Mastery Connect- http://www.masteryconnect.com/home • PARCC- http://www.parcconline.org/classroom • NAEP Questions Tool- http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/itmrlsx/search.aspx?subject=reading • EQuIP- http://www.achieve.org/EQuIP (CCS vetted units and reading models Grade 3-12)

  18. On Demand • CCPS Literacy Wiki- https://iweb.clarkschools.net/wiki/pages/t43136g3B/On_Demand_Training_Materals_%285-8_grades%29.html Grades 5-8 from start to finish materials and prompts. • PD 360- On Demand Community

  19. 3. Tracking Results • Students Keep Track- see forms in packet • Quarterly or unit by unit reflection • Teacher keeps track • Plus/Minus; scores; grade book (New IC features), Group by high/medium/low • Checklists by skill/standard • Conferencing • Assessment stations • Exit Slips • How do you keep track of student progress?

  20. 4. Using Results • Re-teaching • Whole Class • Small Group • Clarifying misconceptions, mini-lesson(s) • Differentiation • Moving on or scaffolding instruction

  21. Example • Pre-test on grammar- parts of speech • Those who scored well- small groups using parts of speech in challenging way (“Jabberwocky”) • Those who were not quite there- practice in small groups and/or with partners with quick test out when they feel they are ready. • Those who do not know it all- practice in small group, to partner, to individual- teacher small group instruction- short assessments leading to whole assessment.
